Restaurang Skarholmen

Skarholmsvägen 1, 756 53 Uppsala, Sweden

Skarholmen is set in a magical location on the banks of Lake Mälaren. A top a small hill, the views over the lake and forest are spectacular, Scandinavian nature at its best.

The food served at Skarholmen is excellent and tends to take on the form of a Smorgasbord approach (Buffet) but that’s not all, their approach evolves as the seasons change, ranging from seafood weeks to traditional Swedish home cooking, this place is great and you can just keep going back for more!

There’s also a great little bar (with views across the lake to die for) with restaurant interiors that showcase Scandinavian design at its best. The large terrace, also overlooks the lake (and the Marina) and should be your first seating choice, if the weather is being kind, it’s a sun trap with a view. 

Skarholmen is a short drive by car (or bus) from Uppsala and is well worth the trip for the views, nature fix and good clean air alone.
